Men’s cricket in Hong Kong is played over a variety of formats, catering for all ages and skill levels.
There are presently four main competitions in Men’s cricket – the Premier League, the Elite League played on Sundays, the Championship League on Saturdays, and the Challenge League played on either day.
There is also the CHK Community Cricket Series, which is designed for non-league players, featuring several single-day tournaments of modified soft-ball cricket formats.
The Premier League is played by the top players in Hong Kong with five teams competing in three formats – two-day, one-day (50-over) and T20. The clubs competing in the Premier League are the Hong Kong Cricket Club, Kowloon Cricket Club, Diasqua Little Sai Wan Cricket Club, Pakistan Association Cricket Club and United Services Recreation Club.
